Award Winning Landscape and Garden Design
Melissa was invited by the RHS to design one of 2 show gardens at their 2011 London Plant and Design Show.
The brief was to create an urban roof terrace. Melissa created a chic outdoor sitting room, complete with comfortable seating, artwork on the walls and a sleek firepit. Roof terraces have a tendency to be exposed to sun and wind and therefore need planting capable of surviving these conditions.
Melissa used planting suitable to green roofs and living walls in a linear layout in keeping with the contemporary feel of the garden. This garden was recently featured in the magazine Elle Decoration May 2012.
The garden was awards Silver-gilt by the RHS.
